IPhone XS - Everything to know in :54 - Apple

While that's a great little tidbit of information to know off hand, the reason it's such good news for existing iPhone X owners is that we now know that all iPhone X accessories will fit the new handset.

It's even worse to think you need to live in China to actually be able to slot two physical SIM cards into one of Apple's hot new mobile devices, while the rest of the world is left dealing with a complicated nano-SIM/eSIM setup.

Apple bills the iPhone XR as "the iPhone X experience in an LCD display".

Arguably the most notable new product: the iPhone Xr delivers iPhone X style with a price cut and some caveats. That works out to $90 per month for an iPhone Xs, with $0 upfront.

Compared to the Apple A11 chipset that powers the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, the hexa-core A12 offers almost 33.3 percent increased performance, doubled GPU score, 50 percent improvement in UX score and around 20 percent improvement in memory score because of which the iPhone XS has managed to achieve such an impressive benchmarking score. The iPhone Xs and Xs Max respectively feature 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch AMOLED screens.

Apple has unveiled details of its latest in-house Arm-based system-on-chip (SoC), the A12 Bionic, powering its next-generation smartphones - and in doing so may beat rival Huawei to market with a commercial 7nm part.

Websites of T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint all are showing delivery dates ranging from September 28 to October 12 for all variants of the iPhone Xs Max but some variants are still available for in-store pickup on launch day.
